Nebraska Dept of Transportation

Weather permitting, a chip seal project will begin August 21 on N-2, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation. Chip seal is an application of an asphalt binder to a roadway surface followed by an aggregate.

State maintenance forces will be performing a chip seal from Reference Post 269 to Reference Post 277 on N-2. The work is anticipated to be completed by Saturday, August 25.

One-lane traffic will occur with the use of a pilot car and flaggers. Motorists should expect to see delays and are reminded to drive cautiously through highway work zones.
